Piano for Friday: Lothlorien

Lothlorien, from Enya’s album “Shepherd Moons,” has been a favorite of mine since middle school. (That’s before the Lord of the Rings films had been produced, by the way, so it bugs me a little to see how many of the YouTube vids of this song describe it as from the movie or, worse, “by” the movie. It’s by Enya, circa 1991. I can’t even recall it being used in the movie — was it really?) I never thought about how simple the piece is, technically, but you can watch the hands of the player on this video; it could be a pretty easy piece to learn. One more for my “when I have a piano” list.

Here’s the song as it appears on the album, for comparison or interest.
